Sevenoaks – a circular walk

24th April 2010
10 miles

On the hottest day of the year so far we arrived at Sevenoaks and then headed straight for Knole Park, a beautiful open space where we saw lots of deer.

I really could’ve stayed here all day and had a picnic, but we kept on walking for a couple of miles. After leaving the park we went through Godden Green, and then headed for a drink stop at the Padwell Arms near Stone Street. On the way to Ightham Mote we passed through lots of orchards. I’d like to return here in Autumn and sample some locally-grown apples.

From this point on we joined the Greensand Way. The woods were absolutely stunning at this time of year, and we had some lovely views from the ridge.


The path eventually ends up back at Knole Park again, where it goes past Knole House and entices you to eat National Trust ice-cream.

It was the first time this year I’ve worn sun cream, but I still managed to miss a bit and got sunburnt on part of my neck. Must be more careful next time.
